Proposition 58: Should education always begin with English?

Hosted by

There are roughly 150,000 students enrolled in LAUSD schools that do not speak English as their first language. And some educators say current law is holding many of them back. Proposition 58 would repeal California's 1998 "English in Public Schools" initiative, and allow non-English languages to be used in public educational instruction. Opponents, however, argue the measure would overturn policies that have elevated language instruction in the state.
